What You Should Know About Hip Pain

When it comes to addressing and treating musculoskeletal problems, a chiropractor can be a valuable asset to have. After all, our chiropractic team focuses on therapeutic, non-invasive, non-surgical, and drug-free ways to improve mobility and overall wellbeing. If you are dealing with hip pain, we can help.

What is causing my hip pain?

There are many reasons someone may experience hip pain. Some of these causes include,

  • Structural abnormalities within the soft tissue, joints or blood vessels
  • Arthritis
  • Trauma or injury
  • An illness that results in inflammation in the hip joint
  • Wear and tear in cartilage from repeated motion/overuse
  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoporosis
     

How can chiropractic care treat my hip pain?

If you are looking for a non-invasive solution to manage your hip pain without resorting to medications or surgery, then chiropractic treatment may be the best option for you. Here at Shaw Chiropractic Center, we provide a variety of modalities and therapeutic techniques that promote natural healing rather than relying on painkillers and invasive treatment options. We can restore functionality and range of motion back into the hips while alleviating pain and stiffness through these simple chiropractic services,

Lifestyle changes: Yes, you can change certain habits and daily routines to reduce hip pain. This may include avoiding activities that can make your symptoms worse while still staying active (e.g. walking more often). Your chiropractor can also provide other lifestyle changes including ergonomic recommendations to improve hip pain while at the office.

Exercises: We will also provide you with a wide range of exercises that can help to stretch and strengthen the muscles, ligaments and other soft tissue within the hips. Since problems in the feet, ankles and legs can lead to radiating pain in the hips, we will also want to pinpoint the cause of your pain so that we can provide you with customized exercises that treat the source of your hip pain whether that’s from flat feet or hip bursitis.

Spinal manipulation: If misalignments within the vertebrae of the spine are also leading to hip pain and limited mobility, regular chiropractic adjustments can help to realign the vertebrae to improve how the body functions as a whole and to prevent spinal issues from making your hip pain worse.
